Highlight on ingredients
It is a white substance extracted from the joints of bamboo. Thanks to its high silica content, it remineralizes, hydrates and participates in the regeneration of your skin while reducing the shine of combination and oily skin.
Organic bamboo macerate
Like organic bamboo hydrosol and bamboo powder, this material is extremely rich in organic silica, an external supply is necessary to maintain the elasticity of the upper layers of the epidermis. Indeed, organic silica stimulates the process of collagen production.
Extracted from olive oil, vegetable Squalene is a derivative of squalene, which is a natural component of human sebum. Its excellent affinity with the skin, by its similarity with natural cutaneous lipids, and its emollient properties make it an ideal active ingredient. It strengthens the cutaneous hydrolipidic barrier, softens the skin and protects it from dehydration.
Organic babassu seed oil
Protective and film-forming, it prevents dehydration of the skin. Anti-radical and anti-aging (thanks to tocotrienols), it fights the aging of the skin.

I am very happy with the Zao compact foundation, it is very creamy and very easy to work with. And for the color, it's perfect: the 729 matches my skin tone exactly. There is a satisfactory choice of colours and you can find your shade with the chart.
I chose the shade Apricot 731. It matifies the skin well and finally I use it without powder. It does not mark wrinkles and the hold is really good. Like it!
I like it. They're nicely creamy. I didn�t check the chart available and I chose a color a little too dark for me (736). I think it will still be ok for the summer, but I will have to buy the 734 next time.
Not for me
Seriously impressed by Zao eyeshadows, I decided to give their foundations a go. I ordered two cream foundations. When I tried to sample one it seemed to be breaking down. I applied it to my face, but it was like sand and liquid, with little balls of grit rather than cream. The second one impressed me because it seemed to give a more natural coverage than my existing Inika foundation. But the next time I tried it (applying with a beauty blender rather than brush because it caught in pores) it gave a pasty coverage that separated in a few hours and settled in my modest creases. Also, none of the colours were right on me. I will also mention that it is somehwat pointless on the manufacturer's behalf to say of samples that they break down quickly once leaving the tube, and while urging customers to try them as quickly as possible, for the delivery method they use to take 5 days to get to customers, also while charging express delivery fees.
